MacNean House & Restaurant
Main Street, Blacklion, Cavan

A slice of heaven in the heart of Cavan is how I would describe this restaurant, from the moment you walk in the door to the time you leave the experience is pure magic, the ambience, the setting, the service and of course the wonderful food is a delight to behlold, I went with my mother as it was her birthday and we went for the prestige menu which was delightful they also brought out some different things in between each course which was very good of them, we were also delighted to meet Neven Maguire who came out to autograph 2 cookbooks for us, not only did we have a wonderful dinner but the breakfast the next day was pure heaven on earth. Definitely worth a visit a bit on the pricey side but worth every single cent.

Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

We went to this restaurant just after Christmas was the perfect time to go after all the turkey etc nice to have some nice italian food. We had lovely pizzas and 2 glasses of wine all for the princely sum of 25 euros I always enjoy going here, the atmosphere is really good and its very handy especially if you are going to something in the IFI or in Temple Bar. The menu is quite varied and they have a special offer menu as well which is good.

Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Visited this restaurant last Tuesday night - great buzz in the place, when we got there, but we were told (and we hadnt made reservations) that we would have to sit in an ante room off the main restaurant it was fine but would definitely recommend reservations, the food was fab we shared a starter - Pate and also then had a steak each it was delicious, had a few gls of house wine, the bill came to 27 euros each !! the staff are very friendly and courteous. This restaurant has also just won In Dublin best restaurant so will have to make sure to go back again, dont let the fact that it is technically north of the river put you off its a great find.

Kambo Chinese Restaurant
Cathedral st, Thurles, Thurles, Tipperary

Visited here a week ago - midweek was quiet enough but still a few people around. Good menu, varied and we decided to go for the set menu for 6 which had ample amounts of food, and very good value, 25 euro per person, for very varied dishes, lots of prawns in the fish dishes which I loved. The good thing about this restaurant is there is a bar below it so if any of your party wants a drink other than wine they can bring it up from the bar below and its just added to your bill, that to me is a a good sign ina restaurant they are not just trying to sell their wine etc. Definitely full marks for this restaurant for value

Ristorante Rinuccini Restaurant
No 1 The Parade, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny

Was on holidays last week the holiday commenced in Kilkenny and I was delighted that I was able to dine here, have heard many many good reviews of the food, there were four of us and we had the table in the middle lots of coming and going but I didnt mind that as the place was very busy, being Friday. I asked could I have the antipasti as a starter and the answer was no problem ! as I wanted to have the meatballs for mains, the antiapasti was delicious lovely and fresh and the dressing lovely as well. My friends had the catch of the day which was out of this world, we had two bottles of wine, the bill whilst not cheap I thought was quite good for what we got. Definitely recommend and return to this restaurant again.

Salamanca Fusion
38 - 40 Parliament Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I visited Salamanca after a long time away and was delighted to see the same menu there, it was a Monday night and they had a great early bird menu we missed it but didnt mind as the other menu was very good, I was with four other people that really didnt understand the concept of tapas but cottoned on pretty quickly - Service excellent and the waiter was very helpful in suggesting dishes to order etc - the wine list is very good here primarily Spanish and Chilean - food quality excellent a tiny bit noisy but if that is the only complaint - Value for money top class.

Milano (Dawson Street)
38 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Went here on Saturday last, I had a voucher which entitled you to a free main course if you ordered one other, very good value, we had a pizza each and a glass of wine, the bill came to 35 euros very good value, I have been to Milanos many times, Dawson Street is my favourite though we had a great waiter he told me how to log onto their website to get more offers etc, will be definitely doing that and definitely going back, I would recommend this restaurant but especially for value

Sous Le Vent
Parnell Street, Thurles, Tipperary

I visited this restaurant last night with my parents, we were greeted very warmly by the maitre d' and seated at a nice table by the window, the menu is very varied, whilst I was tempted to have the tasting meal, there were just so many things that I wanted from the main menu so I opted for the most amazing seafood ina sauce ina bowl, it was out of this world, I then had a steak with frites, again, fabulous, my dad had lamb and my mother had seabass, I had two gls of house wine, the price is very good, and I was delighted to hear that after closing for a while they are now reopening (after much demand) from customers for sunday lunch so that will be by next foray to this restaurant.

Octopussy Seafood Tapas
7 West Pier, Dublin 13, Howth, Dublin

Ate at this restaurant about 3 wks ago, we were trying to get into the place next door but was full till 3pm and we were starving. The Maitre D recommended this place, its a truly authentic tapas bar, the food was subperb I really enjoyed it, we had crab claws and prawns in garlic, bread and meatballs I then ordered a portion of meatballs for myself they were so good.....very reasonable as well and a great atmosphere lots of people coming and going and you are looking right out onto the pier. Definitely recommend this restaurant and definitely make a return visit.

Kelbys Bistro
Amber Springs Hotel, Wexford Rd, Gorey, Gorey, Wexford

I ate at this restaurant last Sunday night, I was on a hotel break and there was 16 of us, I agree with the previous reviewer this restaurant lacks something the atmosphere is a bit of a cold type of a feeling in it. The staff were very short in supply and one of our party had to go out and tell them there was 16 people waiting for 40 mins before any menus arrived, However when this was brought to their attention, two girls arrrived and handled everything for us. I had the salmon for starters and the duck, the duck wasnt the best I have ever tasted a bit overdone....I wouldnt be rushing back here and I wouldnt recommend it.

Chi Asian Restaurant
9 Georges Avenue, Blackrock, Dublin

I went to this restaurant the other night with 3 friends - they have a deal on whereby you get 2 courses and a bottle of wine for 25 euros !!! fantastic - we had the yuk sung and I had thai green curry with noodles - the curry was fab lovely and hot - we ended up having another bottle of the wine for €15 and it was very reasonable meal - the staff were extremely helpful and friendly - definitely a bit of a hidden secret and would definitely recommend it the plc was packed as well which was great.

The Port House
64a South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited this restaurant on Sunday as we had decided we were not doing the whole Valentines day thing, so was ideal, casual, nice food, wine great service, we had some tapas first, frites, and cheese, then had some frittata and some more tapas its so easy going when you can just order the food depending on how hungry you are - had a bottle of lovely red and then had two more glasses, very relaxed, and very very reasonable, about time this city has somewhere like this restaurant for people who have spent time in Spain and France. Enjoy

Dada Restaurant
45 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This restaurant is a bit of a hidden gem, it was recommended to me by a friend who had been there for lunch - I went for the early bird it was really nice we all had the starter plate (between 3) and then the Tangine lamb it was very succulent and you could taste the spices, i believe the chef is Moroccan - it was very quiet the night we were there, but the atmosphere was very good all the same, nice music and attentive wait staff - good value for an early bird definitely return very soon.

Eatery 120
120 Ranelagh Road, Ranelagh, Dublin

Visited this restaurant just before christmas which I thought was going to be a nightmare but actually was a very pleasant experience, it was very relaxing and the atmosphere whilst buzzing wasnt manic - the food was very tasty I had the mussels and the steak all very well presented and cooked to perfection, most of my dinner companions had the steak as well - even though it was a tiny bit pricey as we had a few bottles of wine, I still thought it a fine dining experience and would defintely return.

Saba
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited this restaurant about 2 weeks ago, have to say friends of mine had been raving about it and they were not wrong - the place was buzzing but we were happy enough to have a nice glass of wine while we perused the menu, I have had asian fusion many times but this was the best I have ever had, the curry was so full of chicken and vegetables, we had the starter platter which is a good idea if you cannot make up your mind, my friend had the phad thai and I had a taste it was fantastic, we had two bottles of the house white which was a lovely sauvingon Blanc, the best was the bill we couldnt believe the value they were very nice in coming over saying the table was reserved but if we wanted we could go into another area and have a drink, the staff very professional and knew their stuff. Defintely be going back and I would highly recommend.

The French Paradox Wine Shop & Wine Bar
53 Shelbourne Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Have been here many times as I work in the area, its such a nice place for a glass of wine or tapas like food when you dont want to go to a pub or eat a big meal - the wines are very varied and they usually change them every month or so - some can be expensive but I think its worth it to have somewhere like this on your doorstep - the staff are always very friendly and corteous and they answer your questions and know the information on the various wines and food. The food is always very well presented, I have also been here for lunch one time, I didnt want to go back to work.....This is defintely a hidden gem in Dublin 4 and somewhere I would highly recommend - bon Appetit !

Ouzos Bar and Grill
22 Castle Street, South Co. Dublin, Dalkey, Dublin

Went to this restaurant right after xmas and have to say it was a great start to the New Year, I orderedt the pot of mussels and without a shadow of a doubt they were the best I had ever tasted the sauce was like a soup which I drank after wards with a spoon it was like having two starters. My friends ordered the crab claws, they said they were divine, we all ordered steak for mains - all came out to perfection and the sides were lovely as well - spinach and onions like strips. Finished off with irish coffees and had two glasses of the house white (Australian) - the staff very friendly and efficient and price very good I was lucky enough to have a voucher- atmosphere excellent im going there again in two weeks cannot wait already.

Chapter One Restaurant
18/19 Parnell Square, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Five Stars all around for this superb restaurant - I was here last week for a Retirement Party - we were a bit early so the Maitre D showed us around the kitchens where it was all very quiet !!! and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne. They had provided us with a lovely table for 10 people to the side of the restaurant. The menu wasnt huge which was great as the choices on that were excellent, I had the langoustines and the lamb both presented fantastically elegant and my colleagues all had lovely food as well, we were allowed to stay until well past midnight and there was no rushing out. Overall this restaurant is definitely No. 1 in my book in Dublin and whilst it is far from cheap its worth every penny.

Dandelion
St. Stephen's Green, St Stephens Green, Dublin

Came here on Friday evening with three friends home from the UK, there was a great atmosphere when I arrived, a great after work drink venue, there was a rose champagne promo going on so there was lots of people..there was also two guys on guitars which made the atmospherre even better...we got our table very quickly and the choice of food was very good, they have a great deal where you get two meals for the price of one....our food worked out very reasonable. After that we adjourned to the bar where we had a few cocktails - defintely a good cheap night out. Would go here again and would recommend.

One Pico Restaurant
5-6 Molesworth Place, Schoolhouse Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I was very lucky to be taken here for a lovely birthday lunch, the atmosphere was quite evident upon arrival, relaxed but not lassiez faire by any means. Excellent choice of menu, in fact I had a hard time choosing, eventually settled on pea soup which was extremely delicious and then butternut squash risotto which was undoubtedly one of the best risottos I have ever tasted, amazing flavour and just the right amount, followed by a lovely cheese board, cashel blue and camembert - service was very good and not too in your face, my friend had the pork belly for mains and raved about it. All and all the bill was very fairly priced as I had a mojito and we had two glasses of guinness - to finish off what was an excellent dining experience - cannot wait to return.

The Winding Stair Restaurant
40 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1 , City Centre North, Dublin

Came to the Winding Stair to celebrate a birthday - was surprised when I arrived in first I didnt think it was going to be as small but we were well accommodated, there was 12 of us. I had the Chartecurie Board to start which was very tasty, then I had smoked Haddock in a lovely cream sauce with mash, it was amazing, hot and well presented, my self and a friend then shared the cheese board for dessert, we drank Chateau Neuf de Pap wine (need I say anymore) - the meal was not cheap but it was well worth every penny. My colleagues had steak and they said it all came to their liking, another friend had pork it looked delicious. The service was excellent and I would love to go back there again, maybe for a Saturday lunch/brunch. All in all 10/10 in my book, defintely one of the best restaurants I have ever been to in Dublin.

Baan Thai (Ballsbridge)
16 Merrion Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Have to say this is one of Dublin's well kept secrets the fact that it also in my book the best thai food in Dublin also helps. Dont let the dark interior put you off the minute you experience the authentic thai food you will be blown away. I have been here way too many times to remember but every time has been a wonderful experience. I was lately here at a friends birthday and there were 20 of us, the waiter suggested that we had a kind of a tasting menu rather than everyone ordering separate dishes this was very successful, especially when it came to the bill being paid, the service as usual was excellent and the price even better. This restaurant defintely belongs in the Dublin top ten ......

Darwins
80 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Four friends dined in Darwins last Saturday night, I have to say the exepereince was 'out of this world' - the service was top notch and the food was fantastic - we opted not to go for a starter as we were all eating steaks but then we decided to have the oils and breads which was very tasty - I had the T-bone steak and managed to eat every bite it was so tasty and done to perfection - this was served with mash and green beans and we ordered chips and onion rings which were also very tasty, hot and complemented the meal perfectly. A bottle of chilean white and French red accompanied the meal and four irish coffeess after brought us to a total of €52 each including tip and service. Great value for money, excellent service, we had the table from 7-9.30 which was fine as we were heading to a performance afterwards. Handily located at the top of Angier Street, Darwins is a hidden gem in Dublin.

Chez Max (Palace Street)
1 Palace Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited this restaurant about three weeks ago, first visit was very impressed as had tried (unsuccessfully) to make a reservation before. I think we were lucky it was very early as we had tickets to the Opera - the atmosphere was definitely very Boulevard St. Germain, with Edith Piaf (Le mer) on the background music and I liked the intimacy of the tables and chairs, very Parisean as well. The menu is also very different, in that it looks like a French newspaper !!! - the food was excellent - we both had the french onion soup the difference being they give you the cheese on the side as opposed to melting it on top, and the croutons were on the side as well. I had the moules for mains, tons of fresh mussels in a beautiful wine/garlic broth - with french fries on the side, my companion had the steak it came perfectly done as requested, with pepper sauce on the side. We had a bottle of the house red wine very reasonable. I would have loved to have stayed longer but unfortunatley Puccini called, I am however making a return visit this Thursday and am really looking forward to it
